More Jewelry!

Well, I've sold a few pieces offline (and a couple online) lately-so I decided it was time to add to my shop today...playing with a new background too..instead of covering up the weathered wood on my porch window sills, trying using it uncovered...lol! Still not sure whether I like it or not.

PS I'm cheating today, instead of writing a blog-I'm sending you elsewhere to read one...hmm...I like this lazy method-may have to do it more often! /grin

Daughter's dragon pendant

Well my daughter saw me make a dragon so she finally decided to play with the clay again, and here is the result-she had to show me up by making a much more delicate dragon-lol! :)

This adorable red dragon focal pendant was made by my even more adorable 21 year old daughter-isn't she talented? We both love playing in the clay. The dragon measures 2.75 inches across and 3 inches from the top of the wings to bottom of pendant. The stringing hole is located between his wings. The pendant was made from red polymer clay with copper highlights added in and tiger's eye beads, goldstone and carnelian accents.
